Make More Money

Having a job and regular income in today’s economy is a great thing, and if you love what you do it is nirvana, but it is even better to be able to control what you actually want to earn and not be dependent on the check someone writes you each week or month. Today it is so easy to take back some of that control.  Part time if you have a job, or if you are looking for one, or if you are not working and open to a little or a lot more income.

The new corporation is not squeezing every cent of profit out for themselves, they are sharing with the people helping them build the business. Not because they have developed a huge heart, but because it makes good business sense.  They are going to make a whole lot more money and get greater loyalty from people like you, if they are also helping you get what you want, and making you successful.

Yes, you can be good at what you do, AND actually get paid what you are worth, and there are companies out there who want you to grow your own business and help you succeed because it also helps them grow their business and create greater success, and their way of motivation is sharing the profits. Giving you a piece of that great corporate pie that has made millionaires in the past and is making the billionaires of the future.

There is a trade off, they are paying on performance, and not just because you show up. You do have to get your own desk, but that desk can be at the beach or a coffee shop or overseas, but what a great system ! They still give you all the training, marketing tools and support, and you not only get all the opportunities to make a lot more money, but also to build your own business, usually for a very low investment of around $300 to start and monthly overhead costs of around $100, and if you have ever started a business you realize how ridiculously little that is, especially when you can also get that investment back really quickly.

I have personally met thousands of people who have substantially increased their income this way. I have met tens of thousands who have not. So what is it and what makes the difference between those that do and do not ?

First thing that is really important is that you really look at the opportunity closely. You need to know about the people behind the business, who they are, what their motivation is. You need to believe in the product or service you will be working with, this is key, you need to see the value and it must be something you use yourself.  It is important to get excited, but you also need to make sure the company is legal and solid and has a growth plan.

You need to look at how you get paid, and speak to the people already doing it.  You see, if you are going to put your heart and soul into a business, even one that is not a huge financial investment, you get to interview the company, in just the same way you have been interviewed for a job, because you really are going into business together, and your intention needs to be to hugely succeed, and believe  it will  become your major income source for the future.

So here is the really critical part; know why you want to succeed.

Know clearly and feel strongly why you want to make more money and change your lifestyle. If there is truly nothing you would change in your life, know that and decide if you want to do this for fun, or to help others, what ever it is, just know definitely and passionately why you are going to succeed and why success is not an option but a destination.  Also know that you will need to work with passion for at least a year or two. There are no ‘get rich quick’ schemes.  You may be able to make lots of money quickly if you put in as much effort as you do in a regular job you are good at, but if you want to build a business that will continue to payout over your lifetime, count on at least a couple of great years of success that will pay for an active and early retirement.

So what are some of these new business paradigms that I have been talking about ?  These opportunities are called Network Marketing, or MLM, Multi Level Marketing, or that Pyramid thing, or something I tried, or my friend tried, that never worked out.  If you are fortunate enough to know people who have taken proper advantage of these new business paradigms, you may also have heard them referred to as an Amazing New Business opportunity, something you have to see, or that thing that made John and Mary millionaires in less than a year.

I bought expensive juices and vitamins that are sold in this business model, and the products are great, because I bought them and used them, but could not sell them to my friends or people I met, I just did not see the value. I still use some of these, but never made a penny from them, but there are some other products and services that make much more sense to me and create a win win situation for everyone, so they are the ones I want to share with you with the reasons I see them as a true win win situation for all involved.

The first company that changed my life and opened my mind to this new business environment is World Venture; a travel company that offers lower cost travel while putting the service element back into the travel industry,  and an amazing worldwide travel club, Dreamtrips, that offer 5 star vacations around the world, for 2 and 3 star prices, at a super low cost that is affordable to everyone (a five day cruise for $69). There  are no monthly fees if you share it with 4 people who you want to travel with, and you even get to travel for free if you tell lots of people about it and they join the company.

This company has grown so much since I joined them 6 years ago, they are now International which means that I now own an International Travel Company that let’s people travel at a 5 star level for 2 or 3 star prices, and because it is open overseas, my business is now open 24/7.  The company has just created an amazing social networking site for us that is competing with Facebook but I get paid by the social network MyRovia, and it has lots of ways for my friends to save and make real cash while they are sharing.

Another opportunity I came across that blew me away because their payment system is sheer genius and so lucrative. I put this up front because it is what drew me to the company, but if their products did not resonate with me, I would not have touched this at all. Fortunately their product offering is also incredible.  Just like Costco they find the very best product in a category and then buy it in bulk so they get the very best prices, but unlike Costco, they not only sell it to you for less, they share the profits with you when you refer it to anyone else that also buys one. Can you imagine your bank account now if every time you found a great product at Costco and a friend you told went and got one too, and you got paid !

That is what eCosway is doing, and like Costco, they are setting up real brick and mortar stores all over the world, so you have the choice of shopping on line or at a real store. You get a membership card, just like Costco, but that member number is used to track everyone you refer and everyone they refer for as long as you are a member, so if your neighbor becomes a shopper and goes overseas and recommends it to her friends in other countries and they become members and buy products for years and years and years you keep adding members and get paid an over ride on all of that.  The system they use to make this work is brilliant and makes sense, but you do need to read about if to understand it, because it would, of course make no sense to pay everyone a set percentage, so if this sounds interesting check out the web site: and they are still developing the web site so you need to put in my name, Lily Steiner and my ID# US108131B to log in or buy something.

The products are the best of the best and some are unusual and interesting, and once again, you are building an international business.

I will tell you more about more companies I would recommend as I find them. When you are doing your own research, remember, they need to be great value, not overpriced products just so you can make money. They need to have great executives and management, and they need to be easy to share with others.

I do not suggest you do all of them, but I do encourage you to start with one, that appeals to you, take advantage of the training and resources the company provides and make sure you stay plugged in to the company as much as possible.

I applaud your willingness to step out of your comfort zone and your desire to have more. The more you have the more you can share in all areas of your life. Money gives you the freedom to make choice you really want and not because you ‘have to’.  Imagine where you would spend millions when you have them, not just the things you would buy yourself and your family, although go right ahead and indulge that dream too, but the places you would go, the opportunities you would set up for others. The good the money could do for those that have not yet found your secret to success.

My dream is for every family in India, Africa, every corner of the world to follow their passion and find the business opportunity a new age corporation had developed for them to live their dream. Not a donation, not a hand out, but a global free flowing economy that exchanges money for freedom in life.

Great Job !

Things have changed and will continue to change. Used to be you were dependant on a job to put food on the table. If you worked for a big corporation you were really lucky because it meant stability and a job for life. If you worked hard and long hours and didn’t take vacations you got great job benefits and could continue to work till retirement or death, whichever came first.
There were people you liked and people you didn’t like, but you respected your boss whether you liked him or not, because that was the only way to keep your job. There may have been things you could have done better, ideas that could have improved the company or working conditions, but it really didn’t pay to change things around or rock the boat, because that could cause trouble and you really didn’t want to stand out, because standing out meant you could lose your job. The last thing any one wanted to do was lose this great job with benefits that they could keep till they retired or died.
Only problem was that as human beings, as much as that job was really important, so were goals, dreams and aspirations, and the problem was that even if you worked your way up the ladder those real personal goals and private aspirations stayed dreams that were never realized.
Corporations were created to maximize profits for shareholders or owners and people were, and today some still are, to be used as efficiently and effectively as possible to sustain, maintain or better still expand those profit margins.
I am not suggesting that as a business owner or corporate executive there is anything wrong with that. Everyone was getting what he or she wanted. Management got loyalty and profits, workers got security and benefits, but as economies changed and competition increased and innovation provided new opportunities, corporations took risks that workers were too afraid to, and those risks did not always pay off. The result was that the corporations went under and all that security and especially those benefits disappeared overnight for those overworked and underpaid workers.
Now this may surprise you, but it really was the best thing in the world to happen to the workers. You see the unions working to keep their jobs and get them more benefits were really doing them a disservice. They were tethering them to the same life of servitude and subsistence. The new found freedom, after the initial shock and depression brought them to a realization that things had indeed changed, and they needed to change with them.
The new business model for large corporations, is that of sharing the wealth by sharing the profits. Huge new companies are now being formed with the infrastructure and expertise that is the backbone of any corporation, but instead of giving people jobs, they are giving them opportunities to share in the wealth by paying them for their actual achievements and allowing them to then do the same for others. They are providing the business plan and road map, all the tools and training, and offering partnership and the ability for everyone to grow together. It truly is a win – win – win for everyone.
An example of this new paradigm in business is Bob McNaulty. He successfully grew two billion dollar business and sold them and his newest endeavor is providing the tools and technology for individual wealth creation where people are in business for themselves but not by themselves.
Whereas franchises and traditional businesses cost tens if not hundreds of thousands to buy into, for a little over $300 and $100 a month, Bob gives you the opportunity to own your own on line shopping portal to everything good in on line retail. He has developed all the relationships with major manufacturers and negotiated deals and special pricing, sharing the profits on each product directly with the $300 investor – he will even give you a free store, so you don’t have to spend a penny. When you or anyone else shops on your own web store, you get paid. You can buy everything and anything, because if it is not in your own store, he also collected all the green stores and environmentally friendly stores on the web, then added everyone from Best Buy to Wal-Mart to Gucci and put a link on your web site to theirs, with the percentage of cash back next to the store name so you know what you get back before you buy. He even included all the coupons and other savings, so you really are getting the best price on the web and only after that adding the cash back. Now if you have a free store you share that cash back with who ever gave it to you, but if you pay your $329 and $100 a month, you get to give away as many free stores as you want and share those cash back checks. You also get to build your own business and every time you find someone you want to work with, and bring them on board, you get paid even more. Not one to do things by half, Bob also let’s you earn stock options, so as the company grows, so does your company value. And just to take sharing to that extra level, Bob has kicked in 5% of profits to be shared as a cash bonus every month, by everyone participating in the company as a paid storeowner. It’s just a win- win-win all round. You buy anyway, so why not buy at your own store, and don’t you want everyone else you know to also save money, so the more you share the more you earn. You can take a company tour at and get the details.
Bob is just one example, this article is not an ad for Bob’s company, and so let me give you another example of this new business paradigm where founders are sharing the wealth.
Mike Azcue and Wayne Nugent were very successful sales professionals and had made a lot of money in other people’s companies, building their own businesses but never feeling the wealth was really being shared in a way that was truly empowering, so when they got together, and decided to build their own company, they wanted to create not only a company, but a lifestyle people would say yes to. After all, if you are going to make lots and lots and I mean lots of money, why not also live a lifestyle that matches the wealth. They decided to build a luxury lifestyle, travel company that with a few years of solid dedication could provide you with the dream life, making money while taking vacations.
They put a lot of their own money into building the ultimate search engine in the travel industry and creating value and service in an industry that had become ‘do-it-yourself’ on line. In five long years they took their first dream trip, a 5 day cruise for $33, with port fees and taxes $159, and now offer over 400 Dreamtrips a year to destinations all over the world, together with a social network community about to give Facebook a run for its money. They offer anyone all the tools and an amazing training program that shows you what to do and how to do it and also develops you as a human being, physically and emotionally so you are ready for that Dreamlife once you grow that residual income. For only $300 you get an International travel business with a membership club you can grow all over the world. The monthly fees are under $100 per month, and when you share it with 4 people who become members, because they want to travel too, people who want to save on their own travel, create lifetime memories for their family and friends, and change what everyone else considers a ‘normal work day, the monthly fees go away completely, so you own an international business that has no overheads, and that you started for only $300. How much better than that can it get ?
You can check this one out in details at once again, this is about connecting with a new paradigm that absolutely works. Let me repeat that with a caveat, it absolutely works, if you do.
Here is the rub, in that good old job, if you did not do your job, you got fired and that was a powerful incentive. In this new paradigm, no one is going to fire you, but you need to make sure you still show up for work every day. The reason I say that it absolutely works is because there are hundreds of success stories of people who treated the business like their old job, with dedication and consistency. They may have enjoyed it more, but there was still work to be done, and with any business, there is more to do to get it up and running before you can reap the rewards.
The real key is making the work look and feel like play, so your work life meshes into your leisure time and both are fun and enjoyable, until you just can’t tell one from the other. Mike and Wayne say they are just making a living…….living, so they can also make a living………giving and they have already brought friends who have become like family along for the ride.
I can and will give you lots of other examples of how you can take charge and control of what you do each and every day and live the lifestyle you want or may have dreamed of or is even bigger than any dream. I met a group of law students that followed Mike and Wayne path and when they graduated with high grades from law school, they were also making residual incomes that allowed them to travel and help people in third world countries for a year, instead of taking that a job right out of college, and while they travelled, their income grew, because while they were studying their part time job was an investment in their own company, and while they are away, it is still growing.
The thing that really amazes me as I interact with more and more people creating their own futures rather than being dependant on others for their income, is that they are so different. They backgrounds and interests so diverse. They come from all political persuasions and economic backgrounds and the only thing they really have in common is that they were open to listening, when a friend asked them to come and have a look a company with this new paradigm for sharing. Some of the most successful were actually skeptical and it took months or years for them to be open to listening, but when they saw those around them prospering, and their minds started to open up, and they finally came around, they did not stop and worked with a vengeance once they experienced what was possible. The real truth is, the only way to fail is to give up. Never give up and I will guarantee your success.
